Past events

Staff Appreciation

Our children’s learning environment and educational experiences are enhanced greatly by the work of our school’s teachers and staff. To show appreciation for all they do, staff dinners are organized by the PTO twice per year during conferences. Other small tokens of appreciation are provided to the staff once or twice during the school year. A committee of volunteers is needed to make this event a success.


The carnival is held on the second Friday in May. It is a fun-filled event for our school and the greater community that includes concessions, games, and activities. It is both our largest school event and our largest fundraiser. Local businesses provide much-needed support for this event through silent auction donations and sponsorships. The carnival requires the work of a large number of volunteer committees to organize, manage, and run the event. Check out the Carnival page to learn more! A committee of volunteers is needed to make this event a success.


The Read-A-Thon is held as a fundraiser and a way to encourage students in their reading efforts. It begins at end of January and continues into February. Students are encouraged to read to collect pledges for their reading efforts. Fun activities are included as a part of the read-a-thon, including a rock and read chair in the main hallway. A committee of volunteers is needed to make this event a success.

Wellness Week

Wellness Week is sponsored by the Friends of Indianola PTO and will include fun activities for students on wellness topics such as nutrition, fitness, and kindness to oneself and others. A committee of volunteers is needed to make this event a success. 

Ice Cream Social

In September of each year the PTO hosts a school wide ice cream social on the Druid playground to build school spirit and community. Ice cream treats are provided to all in attendance. Volunteers are needed to organize and staff this event each September.
